Description

Legare Street is renowned for being the most coveted street in downtown Charleston with its lush canopy of oaks lining the entrances to prominent homes that stand along it. The circa 1885 Wilkinson House showcases historic charm and refined updates for modern living. This grand three-story property boasts a lovely garden with all new plantings and hardscape designed by Glen Gardner. The new marble entry, well-appointed formal living room and formal dining space have an ideal flow for entertaining, leading to a chef's dream kitchen. The kitchen features a large center island, marble countertops, backsplash and plenty of storage. Its breakfast nook with new double thermal sliding doors offers an abundance of natural light overlooking the garden. A comfortable den features remote-controlled shades and a fireplace recently converted to wood burning making it the perfect place to relax with family and friends. Both piazzas have been completely restored and add to the atmosphere of seamless indoor to outdoor living. The second-floor master suite features remote controlled shades and a sitting room with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling built-ins. On this level there is also an elegantly designed guest bedroom with doors leading to the piazza. The laundry room is spacious and can be accessed from the back stairwell with a large linen closet right next to it. A quaint sitting area on the second story is a lovely place to catch up on a good book. Additionally, there are two beautifully renovated bathrooms, impeccably designed bedrooms and a new home office/bedroom on the third level. Further updates include all new shutters, new front exterior stucco, a new cooper roof on the majority of the second level, copper downspouts and exterior paint. These upgrades as well as original period features make 6 Legare Street a truly picturesque place to call home.
